YPS Volunteers to help a homeowner in Leschi!

This Saturday, September 15th, volunteers from the RTS Young Professionals Society (YPS) will be repairing a home in Leschi for a 70 year old woman, Ardis.  Ardis lives alone and has trouble walking due to issues with her joints.  The repairs to the home are sponsored by The Swinerton Foundation and include: building a handrail for her front steps, replacing the glass in the back door, a couple of small security and plumbing fixes, clearing out some clutter, completing yard work, and some miscellaneous painting and cleaning. 

The RTS Young Professionals Society (YPS) is a service organization of the nonprofit, Rebuilding Together Seattle (RTS), which provides free home repairs to low income homeowners in the greater Seattle area.   RTS serves the elderly, disabled, families with children, veterans, and nonprofit organizations in need of facility improvements.  YPS members support the mission of RTS by volunteering, networking, and fundraising year-round.   Membership is free! – members are encouraged to get involved, spread the word, and asked to make a onetime donation (of any amount) to Rebuilding Together Seattle during the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) to help cover the costs of YPS events.  To learn more about YPS, please email YPS President, Michelle Holst, at:

This past weekend, YPS had their first social of the year at Kangaroo & Kiwi where they reconnected with old friends and made some new ones!
